Reviewer Rating:


Fast-paced and well-researched, this excellent architectural history recounts the planning, implementation and enduring quality of a successful, early 20th century suburban development in Queens, New York. Charged with designing a beautiful and socially healthy new community, Frederick Law Olmstead Jr. (son of the famous landscape architect who designed Central Park) integrated architectural, landscape and civic elements in creating one of America's most livable communities. If you enjoyed Suburban Nation, this book is for you!
